The Federation of Andhra Pradesh Industries expressed their discontent with the Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy. The FAPI President B V Rama Rao today, in Hyderabad complained that the government lacks sincerity and is unable to analyze the issues faced by the association members. He further said that this was the segment that caters to the needs of the state and employs the maximum number of employees and the CM was neglecting the basic needs of the association.
The President found fault with government to accord power cut to the industrial zone. The power cut which almost extends to more than fifteen days in a month only escalates the cost of production and increases the burden on the end user. The association pressed the demand to withdraw the MD charges on diesel supplies and reintroduce subsidy on diesel. The association also insisted the government to ensure regular power to the industries. Incase if their demands are not met before April 10, the association plans severe protest. The association concluded that after April 10, a team from the FAPI would organize a hunger strike in front of the Parliament. (With inputs from internet- AarKay)
